Every year people say this will be the last time Call of Duty scores big in sales, and every year people are proven wrong. The latest release from the Call of Duty franchise just hit, and it did remarkably well, yet again proving it is an unstoppable money making machine.
With the first week of sales, Call of Duty managed to sell $550 Million worth of units on all platforms, making it one of the biggest entertainment launches of 2015. Also, Call of Duty managed to set a new record with it being the best selling PS4 Digital release in history.
Adam Boyes, VP of Publisher and Developer Relations, Sony Computer Entertainment America said in a statement that: “As we‘ve said from the start, PlayStation is the best place to play Call of Duty, and this record-breaking launch shows how true this statement is. Black Ops III is the biggest launch of the year so far, and the PlayStation Nation is ready. We’re proud to call PlayStation the home of Call of Duty and look forward to supporting our community with DLC map pack content first.”
With this year’s release being one of the best ones in the series history, it is no surprise to see so many people rushing out and playing this installment.
